A two-tone ikat woven exclusively by the women of the T’boli tribe of the Phillipines from abaca.

Traditionally used for clothes, marriage shawls, swaddling and shrouding, no two are alike; these hand woven pieces take months and years to make and are rarely for sale.

However, some pieces are increasingly made for local purchase–each with a small piece of brass attached to the cloth to appease the spirits. Having something so very special in your home is a real privilege. Each weaver is responsible for her piece from start to finish, imbuing the patterns that have been passed down to her by her mother with some of her own imagination.
